Confront Your Challenges and Face Your Fears

Is a Keynote by Next Week Possible? Find Out How.

Confront your challenges. If you’re afraid of something, get after it. Don’t let it hold you back. Back in the day, a long time ago, back in college, I thought I had a fear of public speaking. And you know what? I addressed it head-on. I took a course in public speaking at Bates College, and it changed my life. It gave me confidence. It made me feel that I could speak about anything in front of anyone. And a few years later, I joined Toastmasters. That was in 1990. So between that course in public speaking in college and Toastmasters, I confronted the challenge I had of being afraid of public speaking. I confronted it head-on. And look at me today. I’m not saying I’m Tony Robbins. I’m not saying I’m speaking in front of thousands and thousands of people for pay, but I’m not afraid to speak in front of anyone about anything. I love public speaking. And what I learned about myself from dealing with that challenge head-on, I learned that I can confront any fear head-on if I choose. So, what are you afraid of? What are your fears? What are your phobias? What is holding you back? If there’s something that you fear, if there’s something that you want to do and part of you says I can’t do this, you can do that. You can do this. You got this. So face your fears and confront your challenges. Get after it today.
